It’s morning in Mexico. Buck is feeding his seven dogs. Trailed by the pack, he picks up photos and reveals his past. Buck was born female yet always knew he was male. Even his parents raised him as a boy until puberty. That’s when the conflict began escalating to drug addiction and suicide attempts. Buck fully transitioned to male when he underwent a double mastectomy. The film follows Buck as he creates a new genre in porn trying to change the belief that you need a penis to be a man. Not aware of their child’s fame are his parents, whose participation is a moving reunion uncovering Buck’s early history. Mr. Angel packs a universal lesson of acceptance and is a portrait of an unlikely hero.
